1. Micah McFadden and Bobby Okereke were beasts vs. the Bills
Lastly, come on, how great was the inside linebacker play for the G-Men on Sunday? Micah McFadden and Bobby Okereke were all over the field, making life tough for Josh Allen and the Bills offense as a whole. McFadden ended up with a fumble recovery, while he also added an interception as well.
He has Okereke to thanks for that. Early on in the first quarter, Allen hit Gabe Davis for a short pass, but Okereke flew to the ball and was able to strip it from him. McFadden was there to hop on it and get the Giants offense back out there. Then late in the second quarter, Okereke deflected an Allen pass and McFadden was there to come down with the interception. Boom.
Martindale had an incredible game plan for the Bills high-powered offense and there's no question that Okereke and McFadden were two of the main stars for his unit. More of the same will be needed in the coming weeks from these two 'backers. The potential is there for them to be a serious one-two punch moving forward, which is exciting to even think about due to how bad LB play has been for this team in recent years.
